Excel 2007,
Worksheet row with dates starting with 1/1/2013-ending w/12/31/2013.
On row directly above the date row I have a cell for each day of date row formatted "Custom" "ddd"
My problem is this: eg, today's date of 1/20/2013 reflects "Fri" instead of "Sun" in cell above date cell.
The serial number for date: 1/20/2013 shows 41294. The serial number 41296 reflects Sun.
What is going on here and how must I correct it?
Thank you for your help.

try using in A1
=TEXT(A2,"DDD")

Assuming date is in cell A2

=TEXT(A2,"DDDD")
if you want the full day spelt out
